New “Games libraries in the City of Geneva” guide

Throughout the year, the twelve games libraries subsidised by the City open their doors to people of all ages. Close to a thousand games are available at each library, either on site or on a loan basis. In its 2022 edition, the “Games libraries in the City of Geneva” guide provides all the useful information concerning opening times, which have now been extended to Saturday mornings.

Guide ludothèques

Are you familiar with the games libraries? There is doubtless one near you, in your neighbourhood. There are twelve in total, five on the southern shore and seven on the northern shore. Every year, the games libraries, which are subsidised by the City, and the ''ludobus'', are a big hit with the general public, recording some 170,000 visits.

From activity mat to pool table

In order to make the numerous games on offer in the City’s games libraries available to everyone, the Schools and Child Institutions Service regularly re-publishes the “Games libraries in the City of Geneva” guide.

In each games library, the public is welcomed by professional games librarians who help parents, kids and friends to make their choice. A thousand games and toys are available in each library! From activity mats through board games, symbolic games and construction games to pool tables, there is something for every age and every taste.

The games libraries are open to the public 15 hours a week, including Wednesday afternoons and, now, three hours on Saturday mornings (times vary from one games library to another).
